I have read several articles here and in other forums where one spouse has refused sex at a regular rate (i.e. once or twice a month or even only a few times a year). My wife has refused sex for several years and stated quite clearly she never has intentions of ever having sex again. In fact, she refuses any sort of physical contact.
I hear Catholic teaching where they claim there is no divorce. I also read - quite clearly - in the Bible that you can ONLY divorce for sexual immorality which is clearly defined as violating marriage vows. This includes both adultery and an outright refusal for sex.
What is the Catholic stance on this situation? Divorce is clearly allowed for adultery, but refusal of sex is also clearly “sexual immorality”.
